I .- 



HEIRS OP A GREAT PAST 

In memory of all our Heirs of a great 
past; all of us have an enriched life be- 
cause of those that have been here before us. 

Not only do we belive in God, and a future 
*'of life, of peace, of happiness and of beauty 
surpassing human conception, but we also feel 
that in remembering these worthy ones, we are 
able to attain new heights, and to challenge 
posterity to even greater accomplishments. 

[ Let us remember, therefore, that while we 
pause to read these records, we pay a part- 
ing tribute, and come to consecrate ourselves 
anew to the great unfinished task of creat- 
ing ^ better world. 

• I seek to draw a little closer all the 
relatives, evidencing of faith and hope in 
^•reater courage for the days ahead; and to 
memorialize the loved ones' gone before us, 
those of the Great Past.

INTRODUCTION 

In getting the material by mail, inter 
viewing relatives, the statement that was 
universally used was "OUR PEOPLE". It was 
a joy to hear them tell the memories they 
had of the older members, of their families, 
and the sincerity with which they spoke. I 
almost felt that my requests of them for in- 
formation, names, dates and addresses were 
taken as commands of some high superior. 

After siar years I have the following 
pages of "OUR PEOPLE", on record. It has 
been a privilege to meet the youjiger mem- 
bers of the families, although many only 
by correspondence. 

Remember always, that all of us, you 
and I especially, are decendants from these 
Immigrants, Everywhere Immigrants have en- 
riched and strengthened the fabric of Ameri- 
can life; Our People were the frontiers men, 
they were the ones who represent the many 
sacrifices that were to make life in real 
fulfillment of today. They shared the hope 
of economic opportunity and personal freedom; 
and America provided that to our forefathers, 
to you and me for todays way of life, 

A grateful thanks to the many sources of 
help, my Aunts, Clara Claus, and Sophie 
Scheidemann, said the many cousins. Dear 
Uncle Coony and Aunt Millie Claus, were so 
helpful, Mr, John Scheideman for having unfold- 
ed the early history of the Scheideman Famil- 
ies, Mr. A. Kuc eras' help with the Paiman 
family, and to everyone else who so kindly 
contributed.

THE CrERMN ILIMIGRAIITS 

Gennan Immi/^ration reflected all the 
chaotic conditions of Centeral Europe after 
Uapoleon: the population ,';^ro^:th, the vxide- 
spread hunger, the relir^ious dissention and 
oppression. The Germans included, Lutherans 
Jevjs and Catholics, as well as free-thinlrers. 
Their talents, training and backgrounds 
greatly enriched the nation. To the influ- 
ence of Gennan Immigration in particular, 
although all minority groups contributed, we 
owe the mellowing og the Austere Riritan im- 
print on our daily lives. The Puritians' 
observed the Sabbath as a day of silence and 
solemnity. The Germans' clung to their 
concept of the "Continental Sunday," as a day 
not only of church going, but also revelat- 
ion, of picnic, of visiting, of quiet drinli- 
ing in beer gardens while listening to the 
music of a band. 

The Christmas ritual of religious services 
combinded with the exchange of gifts around 
the Christmas tree is of German origin. So, 
too, is the celebration of the New Year. 

The fact that today almost every large 
American City has its symphony orchestra can 
be traced to the influence of the German 
migration, Leopold Dainrosch and his son, 
V/alter, helped build the famous New York 
Philharmonic, Originally composed mainly 
of German Immigrant Musicians, and called 
The Germania Orchestra, It became the seed 
bed of similar organization all over the 
United States, 



Comm"unity singing and glee clube owe 
much to the German Immigrant, who remember- 
ed his singing societies. Tlie first Leiden- , 
burg was organized in Baltimore in I836. 
Their counterparts have been a feature of 
the German American Community everywhere. 

The ideas of German Immigrants helped 
shape our educational system. They introduc- < 
ed the kindergarten, or children' s play ^\ 
school. They also promoted the concept of ] 
the state endowed -university, patterned after 
the German University. 

The program of physical education in 
the schools had it roots in the TURNVEREIN, 
or the German Gymnastic Society. 

German Immigrant influence has been 
pervasive in our customs and in our basic 
philosophy. Even the hamburger, the 
fraiikfurter and the delicatessen, that j 
neighborhood institution came to us via 



the immigrants. 




TIE IMMIGRANT »S OP 176Il 

In Southern Russia there iieve also 
entire villages with their German Gchools 
and the German language spoken universally 
in the little villages, except when forced 
into the contact vrith Russians, v/ho they 
looked upon with extreme bitterness. 

On June 29th, 176[|- a nev; colony was 
organised. It is believed that this colony 
included ancestors of the Glaus, Greiss, 
Scheidemann and many others who migrated into 
Russia. In one of the books was the follow- 
ing; It is believed that about August l5th, 
1767 there were about 2l5 families, 501 men, 
and [[.56 women, V7ho went to form a Colony, 
called ITorka. A Total of about 2000 migrated. 
They could take along only essentials and 
nothing else was permitted. The Migrant 
group consisted of: 

I|. Doctors 1 Attorney 

I4. Pharmacists 1 Clerk 
1 Theologian 1 Professor 
Various Technicians, such as, 
Military 

Men with handwork skills 
Stone Masons 
Paper Malcers 
Clock Manufactures. 

The above laiown by todays titles. The 
trades and professions stated were brought to 
either teach or serve the Colony. 



Although farming was the occupation 
they all had special skills to contribute 
to the colonist various families. Every 
thing that was in their possession was in 
most cases made within the family group. 
This included raising of flax, and the 
spinning and weaving of the clothe. 

The German people were very concerned 
over the fact that their young were draft- 
ed into the military service. A great deal 
of unrest and desire to make a change. 

Fortunately for them, the ruler of 
Russia at that time was Czarina Catherine 
the third, of German decent, and at one 
time a German Princess. Back in 1762 
Russia at that time was a vast empire with 
need for more population. Catherine, ruler 
at the time, deceided to colonize the Em- 
pire's uninhabited regions. Also to introduce 
a higher culture than was found among the 
Russians. With that in view she issued a 
decree, inviting foreign people, to which 
was published in the principal German and 
Swiss towns and cities. 

Empress Catherine caused to be issued 
a charter, written for the Colonists from 
the West, granting free land, funds, and 
freedom from military service, religious 
freedom and local self goverment to them 
and their descendants forever. 

The responce was immediate and phenomenal. 
Great waves of German people and families 
started eastward. 



After the death of Catherine, (born 1729, 
died 1796) her son Paul and her Grandson 
Alexander approved the same policy, and 
extensive colonization occured from I803 to 
1823. Land had been assigned to each family, 
about a hundred and fifty acres. They did 
not line on the farms, they chose to line in 
the villages. The reason as that due to the 
long winters farming was only a few months 
i occupation. Colonists had advantage of the 
long term loans of considerable sums of 
money besides, exemption from taxes for ten 
years. 

My Mother Elizabeth Scheidemann Claus 
was a weaver, until her family came to the 
United States, in l899. I still have in my 
possesion, wooden spoons that was the only 
eating utensil each family member had. They 
were made only once a year. I was told 
that often small children would chew or bite 
bits off of ther^ spoons until it was very 
difficult to feed one with it, especially 
if it was soup. 

Of course you heard about the fun times 
the little ones had, such as sleighing in 
the winter time. The snow was very deep 
and the slides for sledding were always 
from the roof tops. 

The houses in the colony village for most 
part were made of sandstone, quarried and 
sawed into blocks. In some villages houses 
were built of brick. The roofs were made of 
poles covered with reeds or cane. This was 
so applied that only the thick end of the 
reeds were exposed to view. 



They had garden walls made of stone, en- 
closing the yards, orchards and animal areas. 
Orchards florished and shade and ornamental 
trees graced the yards and streets. They 
soon had horses, cattle, sheep and fouls 
to go with their farming. 

These German Colonists prospered in this 
new home land. The colonist had advantage 
of long term loans of considerable sums of 
money, besides exemption from taxas for ten 
years. These people built beautiful villages 
and named them after the towns in Germany: 
Kassel, Rohrbach, Norka, Stuttgart, Worms, 
and so forth. There was a possible total of 
166 Colonies. 

In latter years, when Alexander came into 
power; this prevailing sense of freedom 
was lifted, and a law passed that every second 
son would be drafted into service. Also 
that they contemplated cancellation of the 
Colonial Charter. That charter was valid 
only for one hundred years, or a century and 
that century had expired. (1762-1862) to all 
those that did not like the interpetation 
were given ten years to leave the country. 

The colonist felt that something had to 
be done. They did not want to become Russian 
subjects nor have their sons drafted into 
the Russian Army. So this time the migration 
was to be across an ocean to the United 
states of America. Again to start new homes. 



churches, and a new life just as their 
ancestors had, had a hundred years or less 
ago. Again to start a new life in a new 
land, and far from the Fatherland. 

Prom this beginning in the fall of 1873 
came the Henry Griess family. Father of 
Grandpa Johann P. Griess, was Sophie Griess 
Scheidemann, whos' family group is included 
in this book. 

In the spring of 1875 the family of 
Johanas Glaus arrived with his family of 
two sons, Adam and John Glaus. John Glaus 
brought with him his family. They were spon- 
sored by Johannes Grosshans of Sutton Nebr. 
They settled near Stocham Nebraska, where they 
lived and homesteaded a farm. Their first 
house was built of Sod. 

Prom the sod house they moved to Sutton 
Nebraska, where a purchase of land was made 
and a new home was built. Latter on a farm 
was purchased south of town. The information 
■ about the Glaus Families is also included 
in this book. 

At the time the Glaus Family arrived in 
< the United States the Russian Ruble had a 
lvalue of fifty- two cents, but much could be 
"•bought in this new land with the money they 
did bring with them. 

They had come across the Atlantic in the 
sterage of the boat. Here they lived the 
15 days, eating only what food they brought 
with them. Although the trip had many hard- 
ships they soon forgot it in their new land, 

and new home. o

THE GRANDFATHER "S CLOCK 
Grandfather Claus cherished it very 
much. It has been passed from Son 
to son. The interesting thing about 
the clock was that the very hour he 
passed away the clock stopped.

Strange Coincidence 

Lifelong Parallel Ends 

Two Nebraska men whose lives were strangely parallel died 
Wednesday within a few hours of each other. 

The two 'were Adam M. Claus of Grand Island and Henry H. 
Troudt of Superior. 

The two were born in the same year in the same town in Rus- 
sia. Mr. Claus was born in June of 1870 and Mr. Troudt in July of 
1870, both at Norka, Russia. 

They came to the United States on the same ship in 1876, and 
they settled in Nebraska towns about 12 miles apart, Mr. Claus in 
Sutton and Mr. Troudt in Stockham. 

They were lifelong friends until about 20 years ago when they 
lost track of each other after Mr. Claus moved to Grand Island and 
Mr. Troudt moved to Superior. But they were reunited this year 
after Mr. Troudt's grandson, Don Troudt, moved to Grand Island 
and had made it a point to determine the whereabouts of Mr. Claus. 

The strange parallel continued when the two men died on the 
same day within hours of each other and it was to be continued fur- 
ther this afternoon when funeral services for the two were to be 
conducted only an hour apart— each in a Presbyterian Chureh.

THE GLAUS ARMORIAL SHIELD 

The Glaus name is a North German and 
Dutch surname which developed from the 
nickname Glaus, shortened from the ancient 
Greek orgin baptismal name Nicolaus or 
Nicolas, meaning "Man of Victorious Army I" 

The Glaus Armorial Shield, granted in 

Medieval Holland. It is black, shield 

centered with a small gold shield decorated 
with a Rampart Lion, 

The meaning of Heraldic Gharges: 
LION-this "King of Beasts," is used as an 
emblem of strength, courage and generosity 
as well as power and royalty. His Noble 
posture is to be erect in rampart position. 
A properly described arms achievement will 
contain the color which maizes up the arms 
background and charges. They are simple 
and few, but follow the precise rules set 
down centuries ago. 

BLAGK- SABLE, the fur of the sable, a 
color associated with night and serenity. 

G-OLD-is highly significant of truth, 
majesty, honor, and more important, a 
truimph of faith in times of adversity. 
Gold: this tincture originates from the 
excellent metal and attributes a suppos- 
ing valor to the bearer. There are many 
important symbolic implication in the 
metal gold. 



5k 



T 



When gold is used as the predominat color, 
it implies heaven, purity and virtue be- 
cause of the abundant light which it re- 
flects. Many royal anns bear gold as the 
background color both in the shield and 
the supporter. 



), The shape of the Glaus Shield is that 
of the earliest bearer of Heraldic cognizance 
dating back to the year of 1150, the shield 
is shaped like a flat iron, conforming to 
the strigent rules of Heraldry. Theshield 
is exclusive to the name.

SAINT NICHOLAS THE SANTA GLAUS 

BY 
Elizabeth Glaus Paiman 

Since our name "Glaus", stems from 
Nicholas, I want to include the history of '• 
the children's most thrilling saint, Santa 
Glaus. Especially endeared among the Germans. 

It goes back to the third century of ''' 
the Christian era and to a real man, 
Nicholas, Bishop of Myra. 

Nicholas was the son of a high offical 
in the town of Pataro. Very early he be- 
came known for his Christian piety. Through ' 
the centuries, stories of Saint Nicholas' 
deeds of kindness have become legends about 
miracles. During the middle ages, Nicholas 
was the patron saint of several countries. 
In England alone, 376 Churches were dedicat- 
ed to him. He became the special guardian 
of children, maidens, scholars, sailors, 
and theives. He also was the patron saint of ' 
the poor; and the doves of pawnbrokers 
shops symbolizes the gold gifts of the Saint 
Nicholas, because pawnbrokers are money- 
lenders to the poor. 



: 



Our Saint Nicholas day, December 6th, ^ 
at old Sarum, now Salisbury, England, a boy 
used to be elected bishop to rule until Holy 
Innocents' Day, December 28, in memory of 
the "Boy-Bishop," Nicholas. This custom 
spread to many English Cathedrals and schools,' 
but by the l5th century it was suppressed by 
the Roman Catholic Church 

56 






On Saint Nicholas Day in Greece and 
Russia, children would find gifts in their 
shores, They pictured Saint Nicholas as 
wearing the clothing of a Bishop, a brown 
robe triinined with white fur, and walking 
beside or riding a white donkey. 

In course of time. Saint Nicholas 
found his way into Germany, and the Low 
Countries, where he was called San Nikolaas. 
When the Dutch settled New Amsterdam in 
America, they brought San Nikolaas with 
them. After the English had conquered New 
Amsterdam, they heard of him through their 
children who played with the Dutch youngsters. 
In conversation between English children and 
English parents, dear old San Nikolaas became 
"Santy Klos", but he remained the benefactor 
of childhood and the source of gifts at 
Christmas time. 

Now "St. Nick", is Santa Glaus, who lives 
at the North Pole and sails through the air 
in a sleigh to bring gifts to good little 
girls and boys.

Interned, Forest Lawn, Memorial Park, 
Mausoleum, Holly Terrace, G-lendale, Galif. 

Occupation, Former owner and operator of 
the Eastern Live Poultry Brokage Business, 
Located at 92? Naomi, Los Angeles, Calif. 

VJhen he lived in the Midwest, and in his 
early years, he was a butcher and susage 
maker. His first business was in Sutton, 
Nebraska, later on took his brother-inlaw, 
Henry Scheidemann into the business, in the 
fall of 1908. (Photo enclosed in the Family 
Records of H, Scheidemann. The business was 
knovm as "THE SUTTON STAR MEAT MARKET." 

When World War I, broke out a great deal 
of pressure was on the German spesiking people, 
so the family was moved to York Nebraska; 
I'^iere Mr. Glaus, was employed by the Kilbourns' 
Market, managing the Meat Department. Mr. H. 
Scheidemann continued to operate the Star | 
Meat Market in Sutton Nebraska, 






In 1920 Hr. Glaus changed his occupation 
and bought and sold live poulty for Mr, E. 
J. Sorensen, of York Nebraska, then two years 
later he did the same kind of service, work- 
ing for Nelson Brothers of Lincoln, Nebr. '\r[

pThis poultry was delivered live to the iLast- 
ern Markets, That is New York, Hew Jersey 
and Chicago. Occasionally to San Francisco 

■ and Los Anfeles. 

1927 he established himself in his own 
^..-business of live poultry. Still selling 
to the same markets of the East and West. 
Late in 1928 he had become well known, and 
-business increased. In 1929 he adver- 
" tised for live poultry in Western Nebraska, 
to his supprise he bought not one or two 
-carloads, as usual, but eight carloads, 
(freight train cars) and was so excited he 
*had a photograph taken of this first time 

experience. By the time he reached New 
''York Market, the Stock Market had crashed and 
he lost all of his investment. Being out in 
the Rural Area, with no contact, as what the 
market was doing or fluctuating, he suffered 
greatly from lack of communication. Even 
.i'Jewspapers were five to seven days old upon 
.arrival from the East. Very few phones, 
.almost before the day of radio. 

In 1930 He moved his family to Los Angeles, 
and established the business during the next 
.two years, at the Naomi address, where Sons, 
Bill and Ray Glaus operate it today. 



During this time he held a seat on the Los 
1 Angeles Stock Exchange. Which helped him to 
'^ control the price for his own business. At 
the same time of his death a very commending 
-pirtice was written in the Stock Exchange 
V«^ily Journal, commending on the sincere way 
' e had helped to control the market in Los 
Uigeles.

BY DICK KIDSON 



g-iloger Claus, who runs 
|iie of the poultry stands 
lit the Farmers Market, 
»4ys this is the season 
irhen some silly birds fly 
Rbuth and the wily hunter, 
paving observed this pe- 
culiar custom, snatches up 
feis fowling piece and heads 
|or the duck blinds or 
tv'hatever their vantage 
points are called, in hopes 
of intercepting the foolish 
fowl. ( Serves the creatures 
right, too, everyone knows 
you come TO Southern 
California for the winter, 
you don't LEAVE here.) 



Well, Roger is pretty 
wily himself, so he's going 
to hold a sale next Tuesday 
^throurh Saturday. He has 
observed that some hunt- 
«rs are blitzed (a gin 
rummy tewn thtt means 
tiie same in humting cir- 
clM — you didn't score a 
single point) Whether you 
didn't hear tJie alann clock 
go off »nd got there too 
late or vou're just a lousy 
shot makes no difference to 
Roger. If he isn't too busy 
he'll listen to your sad tale 
as he hands you a goose, 
mallard duck, guinea hen, 
squab or whatever else you 
claim got away. 

A very conscientious fel- 
low is Roger. He's exam- 
ined each bird on the hoof 
(or is it claw?) and guar- 
antees that it is top quality, 
whether you prefer the big, 
broadbreasted beauties or 
the small broadbreasted 
ones. 

For those who can't tell 
one bird from another, 
Roger has thoughtfully 
commissioned artist George 
Hernandez to create a six 
foot painting showing a 
pheasant, goose, mallard 
duck, guinea hen and squab 
in living color that rivals 
the NBC peacock. Hernan- 
dez used to be associated 
with the Farmers Market, 
a coincidence that may or 
may not be significant. 

Anyway, take home some 
extra poultry and put them 
in your freezer for those 
special occasions when you 
want to improve your 
friends or kiss and make 
up with your wife.

It is said that America is a "melting 
pot" — that once upon a time people from 
all parts of the world alighted here and 
"flnelted" into one fluid society. 

Well, Clarkson is a lump that didn't 
quite melt. A little of the European has 
been preserved here. It does not make us 
less than American — it makes us Czech- 
American. Once a year every Swede, Irish- 
man, Texan, Italian and German in town 
becomes Czech for a few days, and we 
invite the whole world to join In the fun. 
It reminds us of what an American really It: 
a fun-loving modern individualist wilh 
roots In both the soil of America and in the 
?,©ils of other lands. 

So while you're here, do what our 
Czech ancestors did away back when: eat 
the festive foods, drink the traditional 
drinks, and be merry by enjoying the cus- 
4oms, games, music and dances of Old 
Czechoslovakia! Or just watch, eating an 
Ail-American hot dog or hamburger! 

And if someone in a colorful costume 
approaches you and says, "Vitame vas," 
don't be alarmed — it will be one of us 
saying, 

"WE WELCOME YOU" ,

PAMILY IlIPORMATION 

by 

Edna Paiman Kriz 

It pleases me that you are interested in 
your ancestors, in the Old Home Land, in 
Europe. My Paiman G-rand-parents were wonder- 
ful people. They were highly respected and 
I love to cherish their memory. 

Grandpa Paiman was "Pillar" of his Church. 4 
He was a man of manny trades, and could re- 
pair anything. Our Mother the first born, 
learned so much from him. Such as weaving, j 
She could process flax into fine thread and 
weave a beautiful piece of linen. There are 
many other good things she knew how to do. 
In addition to rearing ten healthy children 
of which none were away from home where she I 
left since. j 

Father died at the age of 53* and Uncle 
Josef Paiman had several fine children. One ^ 
son is an artist in Prague, Aunt Josephine 
Knotek, reared four sons aind one daughter. 

91^ 



He twin sister Anna Machacek, had one son, 
who is Mayor in his village. The youngest 
daiighter Emily married Anton Balaban, a Mer- 
chant, Had a very nice life with him. Both 
are deceased, but their children are in good 
circumstances. I am certain you would like 
all these fine families. 

Brother Prank died at the age of 82, and 
} his brother John was 81 when he passed away. 

Our Mother had a busy life, but very in- 
teresting also. She told me all about her 
girlhood days. They lived in Stanton County, 
on a 300 acre farm. Mama had to herd cows, 
she rode a pony side saddle, her name was 
Nellie. She would stay near by until it was 
time to go home. Mama would sit on the grass 
and embroider or knit. "When the horse was 
20 years old she died and the children hurried 
her, and put up a wooden tomb marker on her 
grave. On it they wrote, "Beneath this earth 
lies at rest, of all good Horses, Nellie's 
the best." They raised cattle and turkeys. 

Grandma, went to town every day and did 
house work or else sewed for people. Our 
Mother had to keep house. Mama's Dad died 
when he was 8I, and Grandma our Mother's 
Mother died when she was 76 years old. Our 
Mother was more like her Father in temper- 
ment. Aunt Minnie was more like her Mother. 

95 



I 



Dad met Mother through Friends. He would 
come to see her at the farm, and they had a 
short courtship; only two weeks and they V7ere| 
married. Our Mother was getting ready to go 
and clerk in the Raabe Store at Stanton. 
When Dad came along, she got together her 
trousseau, some cows, and household items. 
Grandma sewes Mama's wedding dress. It was 
a brown dress. 1 

The Bride and Groom settled at Clarkson. 
Dad had a meat market. He did all of the 
butchering. Always worried about it before 
he started out as the bulls go so visicous 
so many times. Mama baked rye bread and they 
made bologna and would serve lunches. All 
three of us were born in this meat market, 
where the family lived in the rear. 






They moved from Clarkson to Dodge, there 
they had another meat market, later sold and 
bought a hotel, which they operated for six 
years. Then two years on a farra, and then | 
to a small acreage, on the edge of Clarkson, 
where both Mother and Dad spent the rest of '^ 
their lives.

THE GERMAN COLONIST 

An interesting article is written about 
the German People Migration from Germany 

to Russia, and then across the Ocean 

The Andres History of the State 

of Nebraska, Vol. II, as follows 

A Colony of Germans from Southern Russia, \ 
near the port of Odessa, on the Black Sea, ,.- , 
came to Sutton Nebraska and settled in the >^ ' 
toT^m ajid adjacent country in the fall of * ^ 
1873. The principal leaders of the Colony 
v;ere John Grosshans, Henry Griess, and 
Henry Hoffman. The whole number of famil- 
ies was fifty-five. They bought in the 
aggregate, 16,120 acres of land as a average 
of $7.00 dollars per acre, making $112,814.0.00, 
that vjas paid the Burlington and Missouri 
Railroad Company and to the homesteaders for 
land. Their property in Sutton cost them, 
$18,000.00. Their combined wealth in this 
Country, vjas $5000,000.00. They were sober 
temperate people and belonged to the Gerraan ' 
Reformed Church. .,- 

The German Reformed Church was established 
at Sutton in the fall of I87I4-, by emigrants 
from Russia. The preliminary meetings were 
held in Grosshans hall. The organization " . 
was effected by Rev. Mr. Dickerman, and the ,- 
congregation had about twenty-five members. 
From Grosshans Hall they re-moved to the 
Odd Fellows' Hall, vihere they remained un- 
till the Church House was built in the fall 
of 1878. 'The building was frame, and about,' 

126 



thirty by sixty feet in size. At that tine 
eighty- three families in the con Tegation, 
with Rev. V/illiam Bonekemper as pastor. 

Henry Crrosshans, of the firm of Jolin 
Grosshans and Company, dealers in grain, 
was born in Russia, I-Iarch 13, 13^3, Imriigrat- 
ing. to America in 1873 with his .-'ather, 
John Grosshans. They located in 3utton, 
ITebraska, in August of that year '/r. ::-roGs- 
hans Sr, purchased eight hundred acres of 
Ismd in the neighborhood. Henry has since 
assisted him in conducting his farms. The 
father and son engaged in grain business, 
in the fall of I876. Henry Grosshans, also 
engaged in the agricultural implement busi- 
ness at this time in Sutton, and 1:3.2 assisted 
by his Brother Agusta . This business was 
established in the spring of I88I. 

Emma Scheidemann Krieger calls our 
attention that: Henry Griess, Father of 
Grandpa Johann P. Griess, Johann P. Griess 
is Sophie Scheidemanns' Fathers, (Emma' 
Mother. )

FAMILY TREE 
BY 
DOUGLAS BULLEY 

I was only able to carry my inhertance 
as far as my Great Grandparents. The foil- 
wing paragraphs are concerned with the 
history of each of ray parents. 

My Fathers' Ancesters: My Fathers' 
Grandparents originally came from New- 
foundland. His grandfather, William 
Bulley, was a wealthy banlcer. His grand- 
mother, Emili Woods, was a prominent high 
society lady, who was often presented to 
the King and Queen of England. My Fathers' 
grandparents on his Mothers side were. 
Bertha Leieshow and August Froemming, were 
German Immigrants who came to America short- 
ly before the Civil War. August was a 
wheat specialist while in Germany, and when 
he came to America he was a banker, and 
Mayor of Algoma, Washington. My Father 
Edward Bulley, M.D. is a Doctor of Pediactrics. 
Charlie Bulley was a minister. All that is 
known of the ancestors of Emily Woods is 
that they were all prominent ministers from 
Boston. 

My Mothers' Ancestors: My Mothers' 
Ancestors originally came over on the May- 
flower, and lived on Cape Macher. (Near 
Cape Cod.) Robert Ventris Macbain, my Mothers' 
grandfather, was a shipbuilder, an accountant, 
and an artist. Her grandmother, Mary Matley, 
originally lived in Virginia. My Mothers' 
father was once a very wealthy man, a buyer 



175 



and a politician. Hamilton Thacher. His 

father, Issac Thacher, was a lawyer. The 

Thacher spelled without a "T", before the "H". 

Some where along the line, Paul Revre was a 

direct decendant in my l-Iothers' line. They 
named my Mother, Pauline Revere Thacher, after <- 
the famed silversmith.
